The biggest recall in Ferrari’s history: How many models will return to service?

-

Ferrari will recall nearly all vehicles sold in the U.S. since 2005 because of a possible problem with the vehicle’s braking system.

The problem could affect nearly 24,000 U.S. Ferrari owners, as a total of 23,555 Ferrari models sold in the U.S. are equipped with a potentially defective brake fluid reservoir cap that fails to adequately release pressure, according to a recall request from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

A defective brake fluid reservoir cap can cause a vacuum in the reservoir, which in turn can cause the brake fluid to leak.

If the brake fluid reservoir dries out, the vehicle’s brakes could fail completely, making the vehicle a potential hazard to the driver and other road users.

Ferrari estimates that only 1% of the recalled vehicles are potentially affected.

Once the vehicle is recalled, fixing the problem is relatively simple.

Ferrari will fit affected vehicles with a new brake fluid reservoir cap and apply a software update that will display a warning message in the instrument cluster when the brake fluid level is dangerously low.

The Italian automaker has advised drivers that if the low brake fluid level warning light begins to flash on any of the recalled vehicles, they should stop immediately and take the vehicle to a service centre.

The model affected by the recall is the 612 Scaglietti, which was produced in 2004, and also the F430, which has been in production since 2005.

Ferrari issued the recall on July 26, 2022, and plans to notify owners and dealers of the update process on Sept. 24.
